Short rows are used to create off centre stripes in garter stitch, that carry right through to the crown. 5 sizes are included to ensure the perfect fit, and due to the pattern structure, the range of sizes is created by two different weight yarns. The Hat is worked in the round and bottom up.

Available as a single pattern or as part of the Playful Woolly Toppers collection.
